Greek Guide to Greatness – Episode 7: Religion

Today, politicians and thought leaders argue over the state of our separation of church and state. But in the classical Greeks’ time, there was no such conflict. Religion was woven into the fabric of essentially all aspects of life. That’s not to say they were fundamentalists; Greek religion varied from valley to valley — there was no rulebook or definitive text. Though their beliefs may feel alien, there may be much to learn from the Ancient Greeks when it comes to how communities balance their spiritual beliefs with their beliefs in how a society should operate.


The National Hellenic Society is an association of visionary Greek American leaders dedicated to celebrating, preserving, and promoting Greece’ s rich heritage with an emphasis on the next generation. The organization’s innovative programs are designed to engage, and inspire its members, families, and communities.

National Geographic and the National Hellenic Society have produced a companion digital series, The Greek Guide to Greatness, that’s available on the PBS and National Geographic websites in addition to below.
